Police call for busking ban, backed by Byron mayor

Have you noticed that the streets of Byron Bay have been a less tuneful and colourful place in the past week or so?

Murray Tinker, and his champion’s trophy, with David Scott.

Ballina-based David Scott has taken second place in the Queensland Men’s Open Golf Croquet Championships held in Brisbaner this month.

David was runner up to Murray Tinker from Caloundra in a top field of 24 players who battled over two days. David narrowly lost the final game 3/7, 7/4, 7/6.

‘David has won many local titles in the past but was happy to be runner up in the Queensland titles,’ Greg Porter, Cherry Street Croquet Club vice president said. In the Plate division two players from Cherry Street finished runner up, and Ray Chapman finished third. ‘A pleasing result for the young Club,’ Greg said.
